Defending Champions Mighty Be Forward Wanderers hope to reduce the gap with current TNM Super League leaders Silver Strikers as they are scheduled to face off with Nchalo United and Dwangwa United this weekend.
Silver Strikers top the 16-member log table with 23 points from 10 games, followed by Nyasa Big Bullets with 22 points from the same number of games.
Wanderers are on position nine with 14 points from 8 games. They climbed up from position 13 to nine when they bagged six points last weekend.

Silver dislodged Bullets when they beat Karonga United 1-2 at Karonga Stadium on Sunday.
Wanderers will play away to Nchalo United at Mangochi Stadium on Saturday before hosting Dwangwa United at Balaka Stadium the next day.
While Silver will host Mafco at Silver Stadium with Azam Tigers hosting Mzuni FC at Mulanje Park Stadium in Mulanje.
And the battle for points will continue on Sunday with Red Lions hosting Moyale FC at Mangochi Stadium; Kamuzu Barracks will battle it out with Mafco at Kasungu Stadium.
Wanderers Team Manager Steve Madeira said the defending champions are now on the right track and look forward to reducing the gap between them and the league leaders.
Madeira said it was also pleasing that his team did not only bag maximum points but also managed to score five goals.
“We will continue to improve as the season unfolds. We have got players with big hearts and will fight tooth and nail to collect the much needed points.
“We have had hard moments and we are working things out. We are largely aiming at getting points. We are not thinking about where others are. We don’t want to drop any points and if we maintain the good run, score more goals, then we will win games and reduce the gap ,” said Madeira.
While Silver Strikers Team Manager Francis Songo said they will equally do everything possible to pocket maximum points in their remaining games.
“It feels good to claim the top slot. There is a lot at stake and we will not allow complacency in our camp. We are looking forward to stretching the lead this weekend,” said Songo.
Should they collect maximum points; the Nomads will climb up to third position with 20 points from 10 games while the Bankers will have 26 points from 11 games.
